Affiliate terms


  1. Payment Requirements:

    1. As a Kickassd affiliate, you may accrue a one-time referral fee for each purchase of a hosting account that you refer to Kickassd that meets the definition of a "Qualified Purchase" and the requirements set forth herein. A "Qualified Purchase" is the purchase of Kickassd's hosting services by a new and unique customer who: (i) clicks on an affiliate tracking link, (ii) completes the signup process within ninety (90) days of clicking on the affiliate tracking link, (iii) maintains an active account with Kickassd for a minimum of thirty (30) days; and (iv) did not transfer from a Kickassd partner or related company.

    2. Affiliate accounts must be active at the time of the referral. No referral fee will accrue for sales that occurred before your participation in the Affiliate Program.

    3. Affiliates are solely responsible for ensuring that all payee information is accurate and up to date in the affiliate system. Kickassd is not responsible for any lost or stolen payments.

    4. Missing or untracked affiliate referrals must be reported during the then current referral period (either between the 1st and the 15th of the month or between the 16th and the end of the month) and will be credited to your account at our sole discretion, provided that such credit has accrued pursuant to the terms contained herein. Referrals that are not reported during the then current referral period will not be credited to your account.

    5. The affiliate referral fees are determined approximately 45 days after the end of the month in which the Qualified Purchase is recorded. Payments are then processed and sent to Affiliates between the 16th of the month and the last day of the month. EXAMPLE: A Qualified Purchase recorded in January will be sent to the Affiliate between March 16th and March 31st.

    6. Payments are sent using the PayPal mass payment system. Kickassd pays for the transaction fee associated with the mass payment system. You are required to supply a PayPal address to receive payments. If you would prefer to receive payments by check, you must notify Kickassd and payments will be sent to the address you provide. Please note that payments by check take up to an additional thirty (30) days to arrive. For larger affiliates with balances of over USD$10,000 per month, Kickassd offers a wire transfer option. To update your payment information, please contact the affiliate department.

    7. Affiliates are responsible for making sure they are able to accept payments.

    8. Affiliates are responsible for any and all fees, taxes, exchange rates, surcharges and other expenses incurred in order to receive their referral fees. Please check with your local banking institution or PayPal to find out if any of these apply for your account.

    9. Because of the high frequency of credit card fraud and cancellation rates, Kickassd reserves the right to hold referral fees for up to two (2) additional months for verification. At Kickassd's sole discretion, we reserve the right to cancel referral fees in the event that we are unable to collect funds, the order is fraudulent, the customer cancels within the first sixty (60) days, or if we learn that the referral fee was earned improperly for any other reason.
